Had a pretty horrible weekend with the diet! Drinks, bread and sugar were involved...yikes. Feeling it today. I set my alarm for 4:30 to get in early b/c I had to be at work at 7am. Didn't make it to the gym so I am going back after work. Yuck. I hope the 6am crew made it through the dreaded 15 min row. I've done it and it sucks!

So glad it's Friday. Decided to get up early with Chad and hit the gym. Power Cleans 6x1. Started with 120, 130, 135, 140, 145-missed, 145missed. It's a good day when you get PR after a week like this! I am so super happy that I cleared 140. I was so close on the 2nd attempt at 145, I ended up pulling it to my chest and actually hitting my chest (which I know is a miracle b/c I'm small up top) but it totally screwed me up. I had it, I had it, I had it! DARN IT. Then it was 185lbs deads for 5, 20 d/u's. Did I mention I am so glad it's Friday?

Try to IF today
12pm-Lots of chicken! salad, few pieces of fruit, nuts

Check out September 17 people I made the site!!

I think every muscle in my body is sore! This has been a hell of a week and today was no exception. Plus, I am just not fully recovered from last night! WOD was OHS 8x 2. 95,100,105,110-missed one, 110, 110, 110-missed one, 110 missed one. Shoulder press 5x5 75,75,75,75,80. 10 rounds of Cindy for time 16:47. You know you are in trouble with Cindy when on the 2nd round you are breaking up your push ups! Form sucked and I couldn't even get off the floor, shoulders spent! Shout out to the kitty for getting 110 for 3...YEAH girl

5am-Hamburger, nuts, a few celery sticks

12pm-Hamburger, salad, peach, nuts
3pm-cheese, veggies, nuts

I wish my husband ate like I. It's super hard make him these comfort food meals and not dive in myself. The steak wasn't bad tonight but this week its been mashed potatoes, corn, rolls, rice, mac and cheese, oreos. Gosh you name it. I do however allow myself to taste test which every good chef does right?:)

This past weekend was amazing! Sarah and I are now Level 1 Certified Crossfit Trainers! Watch out CFFM :) It was a blast, lots of great information and of course I was with my girl so it was even better. Took yesterday off as I was pretty spent. Today I am feeling better but not at 100% recovered.
WOD today was Squats sets of 1 and bench sets of 1. When I first started on this program I was super pumped on trying to set new PR's in both of these categories. However today I didn't get it in either :( Squats- 175, 185, 195, 205-missed, 205-YES! Bench- 130, 135, 140 missed 3 times. Darn it! I got both of my past PR's so I am back where I started I guess. Sarah reminded me that it was a long summer. Which she is totally right. I fell off the wagon the last few months so I am climbing my way back slowly. I know I can get the 140 on the bench, possibly even more on a good day. So I am looking forward to next time!

5am-turkey, peach, nuts
8am-eggs, veggies, nuts
12pm-Turkey burger, salad, nuts, peach

WOD today was Endurance. I went with the 5 min on, 2 1/2 min rest, 6 min on, 3 min rest, 7 min on. I went out in the dark so the first leg was more then 5 min more like 6 something but oh well. It was a good morning for a run! Ring plank holds 1:10, 1:00, 52 seconds-FYI those suck and D/u work which was less then stellar. I am hoping it was b/c I was spent, so I'm going to try those again tomorrow. I am feeling pretty sore from the last 2 days of heavy lifting. It better go away by the weekend or i'm in trouble!!

IF today!
12pm-Super Hungry that IF Sucked today. I think I drank enough coffee and chewed enough gum to kill a small child today! Chicken, salad, nuts
3:45pm-Paleo Kit

Doesn't feel like Tuesday! SWOD today was Deadlifts 5x5. Started at 185, 195, 205, 210, 220! I checked my old books and it looks like back in April my highest at sets of 5 was 215 so I was super excited about that! I would like to get back to or even break my PR which is 285lbs. It's been a while since I've even been close to that, so we'll see. WOD was 8 rounds of 100m run, 8 kbs at 20kl, 8 pull ups. 14:40. I still need to get a little higher on my pull ups, when I get tired I am just barely making it over the bar!

8am-2 white peaches (excellent!), chicken, nuts-2 cups of coffee
12pm-Chicken, nuts, salad, a few slices of pepper
3pm-Chicken, nuts, a few veggies
8pm-turkey burger, kelp noodle stire fry, a little cheese, peach
9pm-zone bar

I have been super hungry the last few days. Gosh darn it...I need to control that!

Labor Day Weekend!

Got up on Saturday and did some Yoga. Went to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch with the hubby and got a pedi while he was sucked into college football. Sunday cleaned around the house, did lots of laundry, tried to find some new kicks with no success and worked on my roadtrip scrapbook. I was able to get some much needed rest this weekend :) I didn't cheat with any chocolate but did over due it on the PB and apples this weekend. They are just sooo freakin' good and I hadn't had fruit all week, I think that's why!
Monday-Back squat 5 sets of 3. 160, 160, 165,170, 175. Bench 5 sets of 3 110, 115, 120, 125, 130 cleared 2 missed the third. I'm pretty excited about my bench, my PR is 135 so I am hoping to break it next day of 1's!!

12pm-Chicken, salad, veggies, nuts
Paleo Kit, peach, zone bar
kelp noodle stir fry with turkey burger
protein shake

I couldn't get full today!! Yikes super hungry all day again!

It's Friday and I am feeling the after math of a full week of crossfit and the new strength program. I am super drained. Today's work was PC sets of 3. 105, 115, 120, 120 missed the 3rd, 120. Not sure what the F i was doing this morning on my cleans. Thinking too much about my form I guess. It was ugly!! WOD was 5 rounds of 200m run, 3 dl at 185, 6 pull ups, 9 burpees. So glad I'm done with that.

IF today-
2 cups of coffee already!
12:00 p.m.-2 eggs, fish, all sorts of veggies with my salad, nuts
3:30pm-Fish, nuts, veggies
7pm-Turkey Burger, squash, zucchini, nuts

This is how you get out of the cliff dwellings, a skinny wooden latter and steep trails! Scary!!
This Mesa Verde National Park in CO. Native Americans actually moved their village off of the Mesa down into the cliffs. I've never seen anything like this, it was amazing!

Today was a lot of work! OHS 6 sets of 3. 75, 80,85,90,90,95. Push press 5 sets of 5. Stay right at 75lbs the entire time. WOD was AMRAP of 15 min. One rope climb, 10 jumping ring dips. I can not wait to be lighter, the rope climbs were for sure a challenge after all of the strength work. My shoulders are shot. Our 6am crew seemed to be MIA this morning. Sarah had to do the WOD all by herself and of course she killed it. But still where was everybody at??
5am-Fish, nuts
9am-Coffee, 4 eggs, veggies, nuts
1pm-Grilled ck with some flavoring, salad, grapes, nuts
4pm-Egg, veggies, nuts
7:30pm-Cheat meal as I had 5 chicken wings, chef salad with Ranch dressing, cheese and lots of other goodies!

Skipping through the land of the mushrooms! (goblin valley)

Working late tonight, so I decided to go back to bed! Caught up with the tail end of the 8am crew and worked out at 9 this morning. Practiced a few handstand holds, some d/u skill work and then onto the rower. I was feeling frisky this morning and decided I needed a good sweat. WOD was 3x 1500m. stayed with in 6 seconds on each row. I am crazy I know, and i'll be feeling it later. The quads are already sore from this week so this didn't help.
IF-didn't mean to but I figured I might as well
12:30pm-Eggs, a little bit of a turkey burger, salad, nuts
3:30- a little mahi mahi, protein shake, spinach
6:30pm-Turkey Burger, salad, nuts

Dead Horse Island at Sunrise

A little tired as I got up this morning. First WOD was snatches 6x3-I started out a little bullish and worked my way down for form reasons! 83, 78, 78,73,73,73. Still not getting the power I would like out of this lift. The knees are going back but I'm still jumping too early. 4 rounds for time of 30 wall ball shots, 500m row. I don't think the rowing last night helped as my quads are feeling spent this morning! Shout out to Sarah who PR'd this morning on her cleans! Way to go girl, you are strong!!
